Head of Finance
c£45-55,000pa Full-time BGC-01759-CI Permanent
We’re delighted to offer an exciting and rare opportunity for an ambitious and commercially minded Head of Finance.
Working for a fast-growing business, which is set to embark on the next stage of their growth journey, you will report to the CFO and be responsible for all aspects of accounting across the company.
Alongside leadership of a small finance team, you will be expected to not only deliver accurate and timely management data to aid senior management decision-making, but also have the confidence and acumen to review, interpret, and act on your analysis.
In what is a typically varied role for a scaling SME with global ambition, you will be involved in the review of monthly management accounts, preparation of board backs, as well as managing costs to drive business efficiencies. Departmental budgets, daily cashflow, payments, preparation of statutory accounts, tax computations, audit files, company insurance, car fleet management, and liaising with external tax advisors and auditors will all be governed by you.
Regular communication with internal departments on commercial activity and expenditure planning will be crucial and, as the business continues to grow, there will be exposure to external investors, including preparation of information, due diligence, and the capture and care of shareholder information.
Whilst the day-to-day offers a great deal of variety, this is also a role where you can be part of a journey and grow together with the business.
We are looking to move quickly with this opportunity, and would be particularly interested if you are a qualified accountant who has experience working with a listed business, or one which has worked towards this goal.
You must be confident, ambitious, a good communicator and, ideally, you will have trained within practice (ACA/ACCA) and are looking for your first move into industry or have already gained some commercial experience in the private sector.
Although this is not a prerequisite, FMCG experience would be of huge benefit.
